Best 2 Website Builders For Bands & Musicians (Yep, Just The 2!)

As a lover of both classic and modern rock, there’s nothing I like more than going to watch a band in my local area on a Friday evening.

Concert scene with brights lights covering the stage and silhouettes of fans in the foregroundI have my favorites and while I subscribe to their Facebook pages to stay up to date, you’d be surprised as to how few actually have their own website.

I actually find it a little frustrating…

I want to be able to browse their site, learn about their history, influences, about the musicians themselves and maybe even purchase their albums.

Bandwidth & Storage Explained (In Layman’s Terms)

When I first started creating websites, bandwidth and storage were two things that I really struggled to get my head around, maybe like you are now.

Movie tickets and a box of popcorn on it's sideAnd do you think I could find a simple explanation anywhere online?

Nope!

Yet each time I tried to sign up with a particular hosting company or website builder, I was supposed to choose which plan suited me best even though I didn’t have a clue what they meant.

It turns out, that choosing the correct amount of bandwidth and storage is just like owning your own movie theater (at least in my head anyway), let me show you what I mean.

The Best Website Builders For Your Church Website (2018 Edition)

Let me start by offering you a warm welcome.

Church seating areaThe last thing I wanted this article to be was just a long list of all the church website builders that I could find.

Too many options with a superficial, generic write up of each wouldn’t be helpful to you.

In fact, it could quite easily lead to procrastination or “paralysis-by-analysis” and you’d be no better off than before you arrived.
